Options include Dexon mesh splenorrhaphy, removing devitalized segments of the spleen with the use of the ultrasonic dissector, the suture ladder of Buntain, segmental and splenic arterial ligation with segmental resection, interlocking suture, long straight needles, hemostatic pledgets
, and viable omentum as bolsters or packing.
1)) Next, pledgets
soaked in topical agents are placed within the nasal cavity to decongest and anesthetize branches of the anterior and posterior ethmoid, sphenopalatine, and nasopalatine nerves.
Venous congestion can be treated with elevation, dressing release, external bleeding through nail plate removal, or with the use of leeches or heparin soaked pledgets
Small tears can be repaired primarily by simple suture with or without the use of pledgets
under direct compression or with application of a vascular clamp thus avoiding the need for potential cardiopulmonary bypass.
Non-absorbable Teflon felt is intended for use in cardiac surgery, most commonly as a patch where there is a tissue defect but also as a buttress for sutures, using small pledgets
for vessel repair.
As a result, a softer, more pliable pledget
is formed that not only increases user comfort during use, but also affords a user with comparable and/or increased leakage protection over conventional tampons or tampon pledgets
In the first place then, take care that you do not open your mouth; but holding your breath, rush at the intruder and seize his cue in your left hand, while with the thumb and index finger of the right, you lay hold of his nose just above the alae with a firm grip; a bolus will drop out of each nostril, with which you are to plug your own nasal passage (be not fastidious) and you may then commence breathing (your mouth still closed)--for these medicated pledgets
possess the property of decomposing the somnolent gas.
The perforation was repaired with direct suture closure using Teflon pledgets
1% of total urine was collected and filtered through two-double pledgets
into plastic bottles containing a few ml of 10% hydrochloric acid solution to maintain pH below 3.
Fluoroscopy-guided UAE consists of the placement of bilateral UA balloon catheters through femoral sheaths, followed by embolization with Gelfoam pledgets
to maintain or achieve hemostasis.
They estimated intraoperative blood loss by measuring the amount in the suction bottle and by weighing the cotton pledgets
before and after the procedures.
The risk lies in the procedural type and technique and may often be due to exposure to suspension sutures, polypropylene pledgets
, or mesh--all of which may serve as a nidus for crystallization.
